Description

Virginia Company Archives is a collection of digitized primary sources from the archives of the Virginia Company of London, an English joint-stock company chartered to establish colonial settlements in North America. The papers document the Virginia Company’s operations, its settlement of Jamestown and the Bermudas in North America, and its dissolution, which led to Virginia becoming a royal colony.

The collection includes manuscripts, transcripts, the four-volume work The Records of the Virginia Company of London, maps, and illustrations. The archives documents are from the Ferrar Papers held by Magdalene College, Cambridge.
